MUSICA (of course) . . . and this excerpt from Girlfriends Forever.
I still have my concert program from that night. It’s 12 x 12 inches, fourteen pages, filled with lovely close-up shots of the boys. But none of them showed John in his underwear! You would have to hang out with me to get that one!
Page two inside the program, an ad for Yardley starring Jean Shrimpton … “Self-Realization = His Capitulation.” If only. Remember the theme music for Yardley ~ Donovan singing, “Wear your love like heaven . . .”?
Another ad in the program ~ they’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony. Glass bottles and electric guitars for the Pepsi Generation. We had it all.
Beatle Boots. The whole inside of the catalog, including all the photos, was in black and white. Very cool.
Flash! As if we might miss out on this. Hello? Cars filled with kids lined up at the drive-in for hours to get into this movie! We already knew the words to all the songs when we got there!
You could send in your dollar — I wonder how many millions they made from this!
They included a band identifier, the players at the concert ~ In case you were in the audience and you hadn’t read Tiger Beat, Teen World, Teen Screen, or Star World for every fragment of Beatle information and didn’t already have your favorite. In case you had no idea they came from Liverpool. (and you lived in a forest, were raised by wolves)
Here’s the back of the program . . .
♫ Oh dear what can I do, baby’s in black and I’m feelin’ blue, tell me Oh what can I do. ♪ You can go to Autograph World and see some of the collectibles.
Hmmmm, so many men, so little time. I can attest to the fact that magazine kissing was never quite as good as pillow kissing.
“I got arms that long to hold you, and keep you by my side…” OK that’s enough . . . ♥ With love from me to you . . .
